HELP!!! Major Problem with my Debbie-Dabble Blog

HELP!!!!!

 I am having MAJOR problems with my main Blog, Debbie-Dabble.


It started a few days ago when I noticed that several new gadgets under the HTML/Java Script Gadget were added to my blog and I did not add them.

They had all the same code  and Face Book was mentioned in it.


 Then the amount of the same gadget seemed to multiply.


 They were all in the Cross Column 2 section.


I tried to delete them, move them and erase the code but nothing happened.....


Then my customized template disappeared and now I can not do anything that has to do with changing things on my blog.


I can not add, delete or alter gadgets, increase the font, move gadgets around or even delete any of my gadgets.

I can post to the blog but that is it.



I have changed my password several times thinking someone else hacked into the blog but that did not work.


I posted on Blogger Forum.




As a paying customer ( yes, I pay $1.99 a month for my Google account), I think there should be some where that I could get in direct contact with a tech support person for Blogger that could help me through this.

UPDATE: I was contacted by a Support Tech from Google who is looking into the problem......



If there is a section somewhere to get in direct contact with tech support, I have not found it!!




If anyone can help me, I would GREATLY appreciate it!!




As for now, I will post on my Christmas blog, A Debbie-Dabble Christmas, and I am even considering starting a new blog to replace my main one, Debbie-Dabble, if I can not find or get any help with this issue.


Hugs,
Deb

Blogger Issues

I am having major issues with Blogger where I found that a whole column of gadgets were added that I did not add and that I cannot delete for the life of me.

I am also having issues trying to customize my blog.

 I have lost all access to change anything on Debbie-Dabble.

Until I get this straightened out, I will not add any new posts because the state of my Blog is a mess!

I am moving my recent posts over to my Christmas Blog and will be posting there at A Debbie-Dabble Christmas!

Cottage Garden, Secret Garden, Part 3, 2016


Today, I am sharing Part 3 of our Cottage Garden.......
But first, I want to Thank these hosts for featuring my post, Been Doing a Bit of Spray Painting!, from last week's parties!!

Thanks to Sherry, over at Olives and Okra, for featuring it as the Most Viewed from the Funtastic Friday Party!
 Thanks so much, Sherry and all the hosts at Funtastic Friday!!

And Thanks to Linda, over at Crafts a La Mode, for picking it as one of her features from last week's What to Do Weekends Party!!
Thanks a bunch, Linda!!

Please stop by and link up to wonderful parties!!

 If you missed Part 1 of our Cottage Garden, Please click HERE
If you missed Part 2 of Our Cottage Garden, please click HERE
In this post, I will be sharing the last area of our Cottage Garden over to the right of the yard..........
There is a path of pavers that lead to the shed in back right hand corner of the yard...........
To decorate the shed up a bit, I hung Toy Shovels from Dollar Tree on the doors.....
On the side of the shed, we store work horses and buckets filled with extra pea gravel, sand and soil......
As I mentioned in the last 2 posts, I took these photos on 2 different days, one that was cloudy and rainy and one that was sunny...........
It is hard to get a good photo of this side of the yard when the sun is out because half of it is shaded by the tree in the back....

Hanging on a shepherd's hook is a Post Man Wind Chime ( remember that Joe is a Mail Man) and a solar Lantern......
The Trellis was bought at Home Depot last year and is anchored to the fence with zip ties!!
Underneath the shepherd's hook is an Angel.........
 And a Solar Rock.......
  There is a set of Solar Dragon Fly Lights wrapped around the Trellis......
   The Bird Bath used to be a fountain but it not longer works.......
  Underneath the bird bath.....
  One of my Garden Gnomes.....
Next to the bird bath is a plant stand with a pot filled with petunias......
They are starting to fill in nicely!!
Another Angel sits on the opposite side of the Bird Bath.....
I bought this Gazing Ball on clearance last year at Big Lot's.....
Asters are planted on the edge of the patio......
  "An Hour in the Garden Put Life's Problems into Perspective"

How true......
 We have not decided if we are going to extend the lattice higher using the trellis for support of it like we did on the other side of the yard.......
We have an older gentleman for a neighbor that lost his wife several years ago,is battling cancer and Joe likes to talk to him over the fence every now and then......

And our yard is a good 3 feet higher than his, separated by a retaining wall on his side....

And that completes my "Tour" of our tiny back yard......

Our "Cottage Garden"

Even though we live in a townhouse development in a row of 10 houses and a row of 10 townhouses sits behind us, we call out back yard our Secret Garden because of how private it is......

Now I know you are thinking how could it possibly be private with living so close to others????

This is why we call it our Secret Garden......
No one can see into our back yard with the Trees and the lattice.......
 I can sit on the Patio in my robe in the morning with my cup of coffee and  no one can see me!!!
 I bet my little yard is more private that a lot of your yards are so we call it our Secret Garden because most of my neighbors have no idea what our back yard even looks like!!
I have decorated our "Cottage Garden" with bright and cheerful colors to make it a "Happy Place" for Joe and I to enjoy and I hope you enjoyed seeing it!!

I have been busy while Joe and I were on Stacation last week.......

We did start the ball rolling on taking care of a lot of things having to do with his upcoming Retirement in September....

I finished tweaking my Patio for the Summer...

 I did some furniture painting in my new "Sitting Room" , former "Guest Room"......

I planted a few more perennials and tweaked a little flower bed by our Court's Mail Boxes......

And to think that I was recently asked by a co worker who said " But what will you do when you retire? Won't you be bored???"

"Apparently, you don't know me too well!" , was my answer!!

I have a lot more to share with all of you........

So I hope you will be back to visit soon!!

And thanks to those who took the time out of their busy day to spend a little bit of time with me!!

If you do not have a blog, PLEASE  give me some way to reply to your comment, maybe by including your email in your comment.  If I can not find a way to reach you, I will reply on the post where you commented so please check back......

Hugs,
Debbie

Cottage Garden, Part 2, 2016

   Today, I am sharing Part 2 of our Cottage Garden....
 In my previous post, I shared Part 1 of our Cottage Garden........
   Click HERE if you missed that post.......
Today, I am sharing the back of the yard and the area between the walk way to the back gate and the walk way to the shed.....

I'll start with the back gate area.......
We don't use our back gate because there is a huge hill and the row of townhouses behind us......
 
 You would be taking your life into your own hands to try to get out the back gate and go anywhere.......
 In past years, I had a wicker chair here, a bike planter and a wrought iron chair......
 This year, I decided to keep it simple........
I hung the hose wreath that I made last year on the gate.....
I still have to go and buy some impatiens to fill this bag........
I moved the mail box that was originally in the front yard out to the back........
I bought the mail box at the Estate Sale of a florist and glued it to a plant stand.......
Next to it on the step is a post with a wood Welcome sign hanging on it......
I still have to paint the post white........
I have a few pots and flower boxes planted with various annuals on the brick pathway that I laid many years ago......YES, I LAID THE BRICK WALKWAY MYSELF!!!!!
If Joe wants to get out through the gate to trim the 1 foot of land we own past the fence, he will not have to move too many things!!

Hanging on a shepherd hook to the right of the gate is a "Solar Lantern" that I made by attaching 2 hanging baskets together and put a solar light inside of it.....
 Beneath it.........
 A mini Flag and a Sun Dial........
 A terra cotta Angel........
A Welcome Rock among some hostas........
And now to the area between the 2 walkways.......
Looking back toward the Patio.......
 At the edge of the walkway.......
An Angel......
A hanging Fairy.....
I took these photos on 2 different days, one sunny and one cloudy because it is hard to take photos in the yard with half of it in the sun and the other shaded.......
A blue Gazing Ball.....
A new guinea impatien is planted in the pot on beneath the Gazing Ball.....
Begonias were just planted in the vintage Watering Can.......
Perennials are starting to bloom......
One of my Garden Gnomes.......
An Angel Rain Gauge....
Moving over to the other side......
A Toad Stool
Some Bunnies and a Frog.......
Can you tell I have a thing with Garden Angels????
 Joe bought them a few years ago in Wegman's for 75% off.......
This Angel sits in front of the Lamp Post.........
The Lamp Post , which was bought at Big Lot's about 10 years ago, is on a timer and has a yellow light bulb in it which is good for keeping the bugs away in the Summer!!
Back by the tree by the shed........
An "Ice Cream Parlor" chair that I turned into a planter.......
A "Born to Garden, Forced to Work" sign hangs on the tree.......
Begonias are planted in the pot in the chair.......
You can see the little Boy statue behind the chair......
 It was bought at a church Flea Market!!!
Sedum is growing in front of the chair and will bloom in the Fall......
And that takes us to the end of this post!!
Our back yard may be tiny but I think it is packed with a lot of personality!!
In my next post, I will share Part 3 of our Cottage Garden..........
The area on this side of the yard and why I call our back yard our "Secret Garden"!!!
So I hope you will be back to visit soon!!

And thanks to those who took the time out of their busy day to spend a little bit of time with me!!

If you do not have a blog, PLEASE  give me some way to reply to your comment, maybe by including your email in your comment.  If I can not find a way to reach you, I will reply on the post where you commented so please check back......

Hugs,
Debbie
